(Aug. 17, 2022) — On Wednesday biomedical researcher and author Dr. James Lyons-Weiler published a post on his Substack, “Popular Rationalism,” introducing the Canadian-produced film, “Uninformed Consent,” which premiered late last month.
It is Lyons-Weiler’s view that the film will “change lives forever…for the better.”
Lyons-Weiler has additional websites here and here. In 2015, he launched the Institute for Pure and Applied Knowledge (IPAK) in order “to provide impartial research results and views on some of the most important and controversial topics in biomedicine, psychiatry, and sociology.”
The institute’s structure is such that it “can have no financial stake in the outcome of the research” so as to produce “ethical, rigorous, objective, and impartial results for the studies they conduct,” its website states.
In April 2019, IPAK launched “The Public Health Policy Initiative” to “help ensure that policies in public health practice and law are founded on a full consideration of available knowledge derived by robust science” with the goal of “putting the Public back into Public Health.”
Lyons-Weiler made an appearance in the video series “COVID Revealed” released late last year by Dr. Patrick Gentempo, a retired chiropractor who gravitated to filmmaking, specifically in the field of health freedom.
“Uninformed Consent” is a joint production of Director Todd Michael Harris, Lrbrti.com and Vaccine Choice Canada under the banner of “Matador Films.” It can be viewed at no charge at lrbrti and Children’s Health Defense, where a panel discussion by CHD leaders, scientists and medical doctors discusses the film’s ramifications.
Parts 1 and 2, released together, focus on Canadian, Australian and American health officials’ response to the COVID-19 “pandemic” by mandating vaccination with the products which came to market at record speed under the United States’ 2020 “Operation Warp Speed.”
The rapid production of the “vaccines” provided many with the expectation that lockdowns, masking, business and school closures and other disruptions to normal life would cease if a majority of the world’s population took the vaccine.
While in many places, including the United States, routine activities have been largely resumed, some in the medical and scientific community maintain the injectable products issued by Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca are neither “safe” nor “effective,” as the Canadian and U.S. governments continue to say.
Included in the film are video clips of individuals who lost loved ones after they were vaccinated. Viewers are also reminded of governments’ heavy hand in dealing with protesters, those appearing in public without a mask or believed to have contracted COVID-19.
Physicians and scientists who attempted to caution the public about what they were observing in the way of deaths and series adverse events following vaccination are also featured, including Dr. Charles Hoffe of British Columbia and U.S. physicians Drs. Peter McCullough and Robert W. Malone, the latter of whom discovered the mRNA technology utilized by Moderna and Pfizer in their COVID-19 products.
Hoffe was one of the first physicians to report that Moderna injections caused blood clots and other serious side effects in a significant segment of his patients who received them. In early April 2021, shortly after the vaccines became widely available in the U.S. and Canada, Hoffe wrote to Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry, also depicted in the film, to report:
The first dose of the Moderna vaccine has now been administered to some of my patients in the community of Lytton, BC. This began with the First Nations members of our community in mid-January, 2021. 900 doses have now been administered.
I have been quite alarmed at the high rate of serious side-effects from this novel treatment.
From this relatively small number of people vaccinated so far, we have had:
- Numerous allergic reactions, with two cases of anaphylaxis.
- One (presumed) vaccine induced sudden death, (in a 72 year old patient with COPD. This patient complained of being more short of breath continually after receiving the vaccine, and died very suddenly and unexpectedly on day 24, after the vaccine. He had no history of cardiovascular disease).
- Three people with ongoing and disabling neurological deficits, with associated chronic pain, persisting for more than 10 weeks after their first vaccine. These neurological deficits include: continual and disabling dizziness, generalised or localized neuromuscular weakness, with or without sensory loss. The chronic pain in these patients is either generalised or regional, with or without headaches.
So in short, in our small community of Lytton, BC, we have one person dead, and three people who look as though they will be permanently disabled, following their first dose of the Moderna vaccine. The age of those affected ranges from 38 to 82 years of age.
Hoffe then asked Henry several questions, including, “Is it medically ethical to continue this vaccine rollout, in view of the severity of these life altering side-effects, after just the first shot?”
By the end of that month, Hoffe was suspended from his emergency-room practice. Separately, he was accused by a disciplinary panel of having “contravened standards imposed under the Health Professions Act, including but not limited to the Canadian Medical Association’s Code of Ethics and Professionalism by publishing statements on social media and other digital platforms that were misleading, incorrect or inflammatory about vaccinations, treatments, and public measures relating to COVID-19.”
Dr. David Martin, PhD, who spearheaded a successful lawsuit to cease mask mandates on U.S. public transportation earlier this year and is supporting another civil case challenging the claim that COVID-19 injections are, in fact, vaccines, also makes an appearance, claiming Joe Biden and the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is “deceiving the American people” about the nature of the products (9:00).
